Completely Obsessed

Jacoby is completely obsessed with shooting baskets. One day after he began walking I pulled the basketball hoop in the picture below out into our family room to see if he would be interested in it yet, and he was instantly hooked. He always stood on our trunk that we use as a coffee table in our family room and so I thought it would be good to get him a stool to stand on. It's pretty cute because when he misses he says, "Oh!" Also, when he's feeling lazy he points to the ball and wants me to fetch it for him. (I usually ignore this.) When he makes it he dances around and claps for himself. He has a couple other little hoops that he also loves to play with. Tyler's parent's have a little hoop that Jacoby is always so excited to go play with, too.

While Jacoby is obsessed with basketball, I'm obsessed with scrapbooking. It works out well for both of us, while he's shooting hoops, I'm doing this:
On Designer Digitals, where I do my digital scrapbooking, they are having a challenge where you do pages about yourself. I'm excited to do this because I hardly ever do any pages about me. This will be like a journal for me and something to save for my family to look at. This is my first page with little tidbits about me.

Jacoby is getting so big. He is such a cutie. You should video him doing the dance when he makes it. That is hilarious that he points at the ball when he wants you to go get it! I love those pages you did. You are so creative! They look great!

Jacoby is going to be a baller! I love the pictures, he's super cute!

LOVE the pictures - how cute are those jeans? I decided everything is cuter in miniature. I really liked the page about you...what original ideas to share in the circles. I am excited to see what a difference you will make in your new ward in Arizona...what an asset you will be...there are probably people praying for someone just like you to move in! Love you guys.

It is so fun to read your post. Jacoby is so cute when he plays ball and I loved it the other day when he and Johnny and I were playing catch and when Johnny made it, Jacoby clapped. What a team player he already is. And that Tammy, (who just left a comment) isn't she just the nicest. When all of are so sad to think about you moving away she has such positive thoughts about it. I am sure she is right! (But I will still miss you like crazy) :(

You failed to mention what a high percentage of shots Jacoby makes — he's amazing! I've never seen a kid like him. He seriously shoots (not throws) the ball and sinks it, like, 90 percent of the time. Amazing.

I love the scrapbook page about yourself. It's fun to see what little details you decided to highlight. :) You're a pretty nice and cute sister.

Tammi, you're so sweet. I think you just made my day. It's always nice to hear optimistic things about moving away! :)

Cute! Scott showed me a video of Jacoby playing basketball too, he's going to be a pro!

And! I LOVE your scrapbooking! I still need to learn from you! And...I'm sorry you are sad about moving! I hope you love Arizona... the shopping is better though, right?
